Central Elementary is an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) school. The IB PYP uses student interest to study topics that are of importance in the world in which we live.
At an IB World School, students build on previous knowledge, develop an understanding of their world, take action, and reflect on their learning. At each grade level students learn about the 6 Transdisciplinary Themes, what we want to learn, focusing on different concepts within each theme from pre-school to 5th grade.
· Who We Are
· Where We Are in Place and Time
· How We Express Ourselves
· How the World Works
· How We Organize Ourselves
· Sharing the Planet
Each unit is referred to as a Unit of Inquiry (UOI). All of the units from pre-school to 5th grade together are referred to as the Programme of Inquiry (POI).
